before the performance’s I had to insure that i was well hydrayted, had enough food in me so that i would have enough energy for the performance. I know were not meant to but i tend to have a “V” before the show and just take sips throughout the show in order to keep my energy at a high.
We have to war up properly so i would play some music through the speakers and start warming up with steph and zach, plus when we started to warm up the year 7’s and 8’s joined in aswell which was good because we wanted them to be warm aswell.
Before eachshow i lay out all my costumes in the order i perform them so that i can just grab them and not have to get all paranoid about not being able to find my costume’s. My hair and make up is dont at least an hour before the show and then i put my lippy on about 5 minutes before we go on.
for me to realx i have to be by myself for a littlewhile in order to feel “calm” so i find a quite place and just finish off my streaching whilst taking deep breathes and going through the choreography in my head, I find that if im around people before i go on stage i loose focus and then dont perform to the best of my ability so by removing myself from the hyped energy it calms and relaxs me and puts me in the right mind set for the opening act.
I know it sound weird but I HAVE to cough and blow my nose before a show, I’m not sure why but its just one of those weird before show things. Its like my friend who has to eat a bannana before a gig…
All of these things help me before the show and help me to perform at my best though before my girst item I always have some nerves but they are ones that wont go away and ive taught myself to cut down those nerves by “removing myself from hyped up peers”
